At UU Dome
Southwind at the UU Dome, 2006
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday Season,
The UU Dome Concert Series sponsored the Florida Folk Group SOUTHWIND,
returning for our NINTH ANNUAL HOLIDAY CONCERT. Opening the show will be 9-year old W.F. "Sonny" Ebsary III aka Rock N Roll Sonny.
SOUTHWIND combined the talented artistry of four area musicians who hail from Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Pasco Counties: Mary Ann Dinella, Sandra Jemison, Sharon Nauman, and Dennis Devine. Southwind's sound is an eclectic blend of close harmonies and unique arrangements featuring the use of multiple instruments. They do a mix of traditional, contemporary and original songs.
For the holiday concert, they will also do a mix of both holiday & non-holiday tunes. Of course, there will be some sing-a-long songs. It wouldn't be a Southwind holiday concert without the audience being required to join in on "The 12 Days of Christmas."
I see that I'm helpless!
ROCK N ROLL SONNY: Opened the show : Future Rock N Roll Star, 9-year old W.F. "SONNY" Ebsary, III. Rock N Roll Sonny enjoys writing and
singing his own songs. His favorite bands include Pink Floyd, Metallica and Green Day. In addition to enjoying music, Sonny also enjoys creating
his own comic books, racing his soapbox derby car, riding his bike and playing with friends.

SOUTHWIND + Rock N Roll Sonny = A very good afternoon of folk and holiday music.
